Description:

intltool from version 0.50.0-6 (with this patch : https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git/tree/trunk/intltool-fixrace.patch?h=packages/intltool) introduce the creation of a lock file toi avoid some race conditions.
However it seems that this lock file is not removed correctly every time

Additional info:
* 0.51.0-6

Steps to reproduce:


$ git clone https://gitlab.xfce.org/xfce/libxfce4ui
$ cd libxfce4ui
$ ./autogen.sh && make distcheck
[...]

ERROR: files left in build directory after distclean:
./po/.intltool-merge-cache.lock
make[1]: *** [Makefile:825: distcleancheck] Error 1

Reverting back to 0.51.0-5 and I can't reproduce the problem.

Created a merge request to fix this as it also affects other XFCE packages. https://code.launchpad.net/~invidian/intltool/fix-dangling-lock-file/+merge/400825

I'm not sure how to confirm it does not make a regression to the races for which lock was originally added, so some extra testing should be done.
